Volunteer of the Week
Claire Burdick
Museum of Life and Science

Both the animals and the Animal Department staff at the Museum of Life and Science rely on Claire Burdick.  She’s eager and willing to do whatever work is needed, whether it’s feeding the animals and cleaning their stalls or maintaining exhibits and preparing areas for the museum’s guests.  Although she’s young, Claire has shown such maturity and professionalism that she’s entrusted with work not normally assigned to volunteers, such as helping out in the Bear House and the Lemur House. 

Claire’s positive attitude and excellent communication skills make her a great member of teams that work on large scale projects, and her resourcefulness and attention to detail mean
that she’s equally good at working independently, freeing the keepers to focus on areas that require more specialized attention.  Thank you, Claire, for your hard work and for your dedication to our Museum!
